Nothing gets a "Vampire Diaries" fan's attention like the mention of the Original vampires. Now that it looks like that family may get its own, Klaus-centered spinoff series, it can be hard to think of anything else.
Fortunately, it does not seem that "The Vampire Diaries" showrunner Julie Plec is keeping quiet on her potential new series. The producer spilled a whole lot of beans about "The Originals" when she gave an interview to EW.com.
First of all, the basics on "The Originals". The show will center on Klaus (Joseph Morgan) as he travels back to New Orleans, a city he helped to found several hundred years earlier. Newly introduced werewolf Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin) will also play a part in the story. The introduction to the spinoff will come in the form of a back-door pilot, set to air as a regular "TVD" episode on April 25.
Marcel is another one of those fun vampires.
We don't need to worry about Marcel being a serious or moral vampire in any way. If anything, we may be getting a new Damon in the spinoff. "He is the life of the party," Plec said of King Vampire of New Orleans. "He is diabolical
and dangerous and he is a rock star. If anything, he's that kind of hard-partying, hard-living vampire who knows how to enjoy the most out of life."
The other Original siblings may have a part, but it's not certain yet.
When asked about the involvement of Klaus' siblings
Elijah (Daniel Gillies) and Rebekah (Claire Holt), Plec said:" there is always a role for Elijah. It's only a matter of whether in Daniel Gillies' world there is an interest in having a job."
As for Rebekah, the "TVD" showrunner remained coy. "It really all comes down to Rebekah's future, and all that stuff that remains undetermined."
The werewolf remains a mystery.
Since all reports have included Hayley in the potential story of "The Originals," it is natural to wonder how the werewolf fits in. Plec isn't saying. "That is all part of the big mystery," she said. "No one should assume anything about the way this is gonna play out, because with luck, it will be a nice surprise for everybody."
